By: CSU Sports Media
Hampton took advantage of Charleston Southern mistakes in the second half Monday night taking the Big South opener for both squads 67-55 from Buccaneer Field House.
Hampton (2-4, 1-0 Big South) saw four players finish the night in double figures and turned 16 Charleston Southern (1-4, 0-1 Big South) turnovers into 24 points on the other end including 17 fast break on the night to erase a halftime deficit.
Phlandrous Fleming Jr. led all scorers with 21 points and 10 rebounds for his first double-double of the season and Jamir Moore added 15 on five made treys, but 11 second half miscues made the difference.
Edward Oliver-Hampton secured a double-double for the Pirate with 12 points and a game-high 13 rebounds while the Big South’s third-leading scorer Davion Warren added 15, Dajour Dickens had 14 and Russel Dena added 14 in the Pirate victory.
Hampton and Charleston Southern finish their two-game series Tuesday night from Buccaneer Field House with tipoff slated for 6 p.m. on ESPN+.
